Second Helpings

Bottomless Brunch Returns: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, November 7-11

It was another slow week for restaurant openings this week, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to look forward to — like a big brunch that's been missing in Denver for a few months. Zengo closed for nearly two months at the end of the summer, reopening the first week of October with new executive chef Robert “BJ” Wojtowicz, a new menu and updated decor. But there was one thing missing from the Commons Park restaurant that has served the globetrotting cuisine of restaurateur Richard Sandoval for more than a decade: the gloriously indulgent bottomless brunch that has summoned many a slumbering Denverite from deep sleep over the years. But after a few weeks to regain its legs, Zengo is relaunching brunch every Saturday and Sunday, beginning tomorrow (November 12). Regulars know the routine, but to the uninitiated, here's how it works: For $25 per person, waiters bring seemingly endless rounds of small plates, sometimes several at a time — so it's best to go with a group. For $14 more, you get unlimited mimosas, bloody Marys and margaritas, too. If this all sounds too good to pass up, that's because it is. Remember to wear your stretchy pants.
